HAS CHICK-FIL-A SOLD OUT?
Discussed by JP Duffy
with Family Research Council (www.FRC.org)


Part 1 of 2

The majority of us have heard by now about Chick-fil-A’s charitable arm cutting off future donations to the Salvation Army. But did you know that on the same day they stopped those checks, Chick-fil-A sent one to the Covenant House, a group that has hosted a local Drag Queen Story Hour and celebrates LGBTQ pride.

Yes – it’s true!

JP Duffy is the Senior Vice President for Communications at the Family Research Council. Today, JP discusses his first job at CFA way back in 1997, how that experience changed his life, and what Christians should know about the company going forward.

You can find JP’s article here.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What did JP learn about life and Christ while a teenager working at CFA?

When did the phrase “My pleasure” become the slogan of CFA?

In JP’s opinion, are the Christian principles and values he gained while working at CFA gone today? JP discusses more about CFA’s new support of Covenant House.

Will the LGBTQ activists ever be appeased? Will they just keep coming back for more and more and more?

How can CFA now give money to organizations that have inspired so much hate against Christians?



PART 2 OF 2 - HAS CHICK-FIL-A SOLD OUT?
Discussed by JP Duffy
with Family Research Council (www.FRC.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Are there many businesses in America and around the world that strive to work within biblical principles?

Is religious freedom the right to live out your faith in every area of life, including the workplace?

What happened to the Asbestos Brothers for refusing to fall down and worship the golden image?

How should Christians respond to the attack on our religious freedom?




WARM UP YOUR LUKEWARMNESS
Discussed by Dr. Autumn Galbreath
with Christian Medical and Dental Association www.CMDA.org

It is so easy to be a Christian in America. For far too many Christian’s in other countries, struggles and life-threatening dangers are faced daily.

Dr. Autumn Galbreath recently visited Auschwitz, Poland. What she witnessed and discovered there shocked her – and will probably shock you, as well.

Which are you: I go to church. The Preacher preaches. Then, I go home and do nothing. For that’s what too many Christians do now.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Listen as Dr. Dawn Galbreath describers the story line of the book she read prior to her visit to Poland.

How can we be the hands and feet of Jesus to those around us?

Is it too easy being a Christian in the US? Is it easy to be lukewarm? Are too many Christians “judgey”?

Are there two different kinds of “lukewarm Christians” in America?

Do we risk becoming complicit with evil by failing to speak out against it?

TORAH FOR LIVING
Discussed by Sara Tracey
with The What's UP Radio Program


Mark Lanier has a brand-new devotional book out:Torah for Living: Daily Prayers, Wisdom, and Guidance.”

Listen as Sara Tracey shares today’s devotion from from from Deuteronomy 26:15

Sometimes we get so caught up in work, school, hobbies, taking care of kids, and church that we lose our focus. God wants us to slow down and take care of ourselves. How can you slow down this holiday season? How can you change your focus to God and the things He wants you to do?



THE ADULTERESS
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Part 5

Is the Gospel of John that we read today the original manuscript?  Is it 100% true and accurate?

Mark Lanier uses a Timeline of Western Intellectual History to explain the various ways the Bible has been translated correctly and incorrectly over the centuries. He focuses on the story of The Adulteress in John 7:52–8:11.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Over the past few days Mark discussed the various reasons translations of the Bible have changed over the centuries. Today he ties all of this information together to explain why some translations of the Bible do not include John 7:53–8:11.

This story bothers Mark. Here are some questions he has: Why did the pharisees bring the woman to Jesus? Did the pharisees catch her in the act of adultery? Or did the man rat on her? Why didn’t the man get in trouble? He was sinning, too! Mark references Leviticus 20:10 and Exodus 31. What was Jesus’ response to the pharisees? Mark says this: “Don’t start playing Bible trivia with Jesus. You will lose!” How did Jesus offer compassion to the woman?

TAKE AWAYS:
Rely on Scripture
Jesus authored our forgiveness
Jesus instructs us on how to live



THE PROMISED KING IS HERE
Discussed by Pastor Steven Morris
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)


Part 5

Do you sometimes miss the bigger picture? The Christmas season often leaves us feeling tired and unsatisfied. Let’s change that this year!

Pastor Steven Morris begins a new sermon series this week: “Amazing Grace”. It’s time to change our focus from the things in front of us and focus on the bigger picture.

Scripture Passage: Matthew 1: 1-17

Questions/Issues Discussed:

When we look at the genealogy of Jesus, we may ask “Why them?” There are a lot of imperfect people on that list! But that’s exactly the point! God didn’t send His son for “perfect people” because there are none! Jesus came because He was needed. He came because of God’s Amazing Grace.

Why did Matthew break his pattern of “so and so the father of so and so” in verse 16? In this verse, he wrote: “Joseph, the husband of Mary”. Listen as Pastor Steven explains!

Scripture References:
Romans 5:8
John 1:12


FINAL THOUGHTS:
You have the right to be in the Family of God!
Slow down and focus on the bigger picture.
Take in the beauty of God’s amazing grace.
